Port Melbourne – The Garden Party this Saturday Reply

garden partyThis carnival is an outdoor community event held at the Port Melbourne Neighbourhood House. It has been held for the last six years and it aims to bring the Port Melbourne community together. The Port Melbourne Neighbourhood House received $10,000 from the Local Festivals Fund for this event.
The event includes local musicians playing live and a number of free activities, including jumping castles, animal nursery, face painting and a parade. A highlight of the Community Carnival will be a series of creative workshops and a parade/display of the work created. The focus will be on community art principles, accessibility and art focused on themes of local community.
These workshops are facilitated by local artists and community/cultural organisations. This year the main event will be a Flower Pot Parade: with workshops facilitated by well-known local artist Elizabeth Milsom. The parade will involve themes for children and ‘the Port Melbourne ‘flower pot’ where participants create their vision of their neighbourhood.
